Some More Painting

I've been picking up paints and working on my GZG Scandinavian Federation troops.  Doing a simple scheme on these since it has been quite some time since I have painted, let alone 15mm figures.  Light gray primer, off white base coat, dry brush white, white on gloves and fur around the hood, light blue on the goggle glass, grey green on the weapons and binoculars, dry brush steel on the weapons, and now looking for a white or light gray wash to complete them.  Then basing with some fine ballast and snow, along with a few tufts for some color.

Update - Worked on the bases a bit.  Fairly happy with how they turned out.  I still want to find some white or pale gray wash, then seal them with a flat varnish.

  1. They really look pretty good, for the wash, maybe a thinned Windsor and Newton ink or similar product. You could just add wisps of a slightly darker grey paint in the wrinkles and folds with a fine brush, though it would probably take longer. good to see you painting again.

    1. Thanks, Brian! I have some pale grey wash from Vallejo, but am almost afraid to try it as I do not want to darken the figures too much. :)

    1. Thank you! I think once the bases and wash get on them they will be suitable for some tabletop play!

    1. LOL, I know what you mean. I have bought and sold many GZG figures as I get interested in a project, then change directions, then Jon will come out with something new and BAM there I go again.
